Change default paste behavior in Word


I have always wondered about how to change the default behavior for MS Word, because the default paste mode is to try to use the existing formatting of whatever text you have cut. If you cut and paste much from web sites, this can wreak havoc on your layout. I finally decided to Google it tonight and found the easy fix from MS Office Online.

You too can paste text without the formatting into a Word document, according to this Help and How-to from Microsoft Office Online.
